Law enforcement in Connecticut said Friday they were investigating a potential threat against President Barack Obama, local news outlets reported, according to Reuters news agency.

The U.S. Secret Service, responsible for the security of the president, issued a statement saying that information “has been received by law enforcement regarding a potentially suspicious person and vehicle. We are working with our local law enforcement partners to determine the validity of the information provided.”

The Hartford Courant, a local newspaper, said state police were searching for a man who allegedly had made a threat against Obama and was driving a silver Volkswagen Jetta.

Obama was scheduled to be in Rhode Island on Friday night for a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser.

No further details were immediately available.
